This was my first visit to Bratislava, and I choose this property based on positive reviews on TripAdvisor.
I came in via rental car, and it was fairly easy to find with GPS. There is on site parking, driving through a rising door and below the hotel itself. It is a very narrow one-way path to drive down, and the corners are tight and the parking spaces even tighter. There is no valet, just self park, so I would recommend caution navigating this parking option. It worked out fine for me, but it is really, really tight to navigate (though I had a mid-sized Mercedes – not the typical super compact European car).
Everyone I encountered on staff was very pleasant and professional.
The property truly feels “boutique” with a lot of character – a really fun place to stay.
The room was fairly well-sized with ample room for luggage and walking around. While not “modern”, there were a lot of special touches such as original artwork and such.
There are a lot of amenities in the room, such as a DVD player, small fridge, and more.
I did not have time to take advantage to some of the onsite amenities.
The location is nice – lots of great places all around that are walking distance. It felt very safe all around, and offered a lot of opportunity to explore Bratislava.
I would highly recommend this property and hope to return some day for a longer stay.
